Reserve Procedures for Faculty

Forms to Place Items on Reserve

Please complete the Course Reserve request form for the location where you want your materials to be located.

Electronic Reserves

There are a couple of ways to provide your students with electronic access to readings while complying with copyright law and license restrictions:

  1. In many cases, you can find or create a direct connection (known variously as a durable link, persistent link, DURL, or PURL) to the reading in one of the libraries' subscription databases, and place that link in your Blackboard course. See IRT's help pages for more on using Blackboard.
  2. If that is not an option, Course Reserve staff may create an electronic reserve item accessible from the CLICnet catalog. To use this option, you will need to send or bring us a physical or PDF copy of the reading.

This electronic reserve copy will be subject to "Fair Use" provisions of the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Section 107.

In addition:

  • This document is not from a consumable work (for example, a printed workbook).
  • This document does not constitute creation, replacement, or substitution for an anthology or other published work.

For more information regarding "Fair Use," see the UST Copyright site.

Books on Course Reserve

Books from the UST Libraries can be placed on Course Reserve. You may also place on reserve a personal copy (such as a textbook) or send a purchase request through your library liaison to acquire an item we do not own--plan well ahead as acquiring a book takes time.

  • Textbooks are not generally purchased for the Library's collection.
  • Books from other schools cannot ordinarily be put on reserve.
  • Personal materials will be returned to the instructor at the end of the semester, unless other arrangements have been made.
